Review: The Body Shop's Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil

Cleansing oils started to interest me last year when they were popping up in different blogs that I followed. Most of the cleansing oils were from asian brands, as this type of product hadn't yet become popular in North America. Now, it seems that every known brand is making their own cleansing oil. When I spotted the Camomile Silky Cleansing Oil in my local Body Shop, I just couldn't resist to finally try. The price was 16 dollars, but if I remember correctly there was a sale going on, so I got it for a little bit cheaper than that.

I've had this cleansing oil for a while now, and I've been using it to remove my make up before cleansing with my St. Ives Green Tea scrub. It removes makeup beautifully, and it even removes waterproof mascara. You just apply it on dry skin and massage it in. After doing this, simply remove it with a little bit of water. The oil comes off, along with the makeup you were wearing. Super easy!

Smells wonderful, like a bouquet of camomile
Not irritating to eyes or skin
Removes makeup completely

The pump is a little tricky, you have to be careful not to accidentally squirt the product everywhere (which happens to me often -_-)
The price is a little expensive (16 dollars for 200 ml)

I really like this cleansing oil, and will definitely be repurchasing once I run out. However, I think I will try to repurchase when there is a sale because it's quite expensive in my opinion. I recommend this for anyone who has sensitive skin and wants to try cleansing oils.

  2. Hi Eden! You really should it works great :)

  3. I need to pick this up, I've heard so many great things and as my skin is quite sensitive and gets dry I think it could really benefit from a cleansing oil. The Body Shop is so affordable also, it's a great place to try things out!
